Earthlust -- Review and Giveaway

As I have intimated through my blog description and several of my posts I am rather environment conscious. I am by no means a fanatic but I do believe that we all contribute to the problem of waste and all must strive in our daily lives to pursue a solution!
One of my biggest environmental "pet peeves" is the use of bottled water. I mean do you truly know where your bottled water comes from? Do you know if it is better, cleaner, safer than filtered water from your very own faucet? Is there really a mystical spring that has escaped all forms of pollution and contamination?
"Well, I recycle my plastic bottles!" you may say but the energy used in the production of plastics and the energy used to recycle it is extraordinary and unnecessary. We also have learned more about the dangers of plastics in recent years. Many plastic drinking bottles contain harmful chemicals known as BPAs. Energy could be conserved and harmful chemicals avoided by one simple act...
Drink tap water and carry it in a safe, reusable, and durable stainless steel Earthlust drinking bottle!

This company was founded when a new mom decided she wanted to protect her baby's health and the health of the environment! Allison wanted to know the water her family was drinking was safe and that they were not creating extra waste in the process. These bottles are designed in the United States and earthlust is a member of 1% For the Planet!

Not only are earthlust products environment healthy but they are also undeniably stylish, and beautiful. The 1 litre bottle I received is adorned with an eye-catching tree graphic and is so aesthetically pleasing that I have a feeling of calm and serenity just looking at it. The 1 litre size is excellent for a day trip or practical to share with hubby and the kids on a family excursion! I am a fanatical water junkie so the 1 litre is the perfect size for me. Earthlust also carries 20oz, and 13oz bottles fantastic to bring to work, carry in a pack, take running, or just to grab on a dash out the door. Insulated mugs are also available for hot drinks!
One of my lucky readers will win a product for "our sexy planet" an earthlust cold beverage drinking bottle of their choice!!

  8. Since I already have 2 of the larger ones (which I love!) I'd pick the 13oz tree one for my son. These containers are going to be awesome for the summer months, my hands get cold holding them when there's cold water inside so they'll keep water nice and cold during car trips, etc.
